Sting played on Foolish Heart at Buckeye Lake that summer, too. Vince joined Sting's band earlier in the evening.

At another Buckeye Lake show a year earlier, it was The Steve Miller Band's last night in the opening slot and he and Norton Buffalo came out during the second set. My memory was failing me as to which songs they did, but having just looked at deadlists, I believe it was West LA Fadeaway>Truckin>Spoonful. At the start of the show, Steve told the audience that since it was their last night, that they would have some fun by just kicking out some blues for a while. I was not yet educated about blues, so I don't know what they played, but now that I know a thing or two about a thing or two, I'm going to guess that at some point during his set that he very well might have mentioned being crazy 'bout a Mercury. Whatever they played, they were definitely in a very cool groove. Weird thing, though, was that after a half hour or so, when Steve decided to finally roll out one of the big hits, just a few notes or so into Fly Like An Eagle, every speaker in the entire place just went POOF! Total silence, and again, just at the moment when the set really kicked into a higher gear. I never heard a more absolute failure of power at a show in my life. Someone found where the plug had been pulled after a couple of minutes, and the sound was restored, but not before Steve shrugged big enough so that all 20-30,000 (or more, who knows?) people there could see that it confused him as much as it did us.

After the show that night, I walked through the parking lot giving away peanut butter cups. I was a little surprised by how many people asked me "how much?" before accepting the offer. Can't say I really blame them. Nobody wants to make a commitment to something before they know what the financial burden is.

Tiger-
Aren't you the source for the goodies tonight? First I look at the Roy Buchanan thread, now this.

Some really nice images here. In the third pic of the gallery, who is it on the right edge of the shot whose face is just out of frame that has a Stealie on his axe?

I also remember at that Buckeye Lake show that I mentioned earlier that we walked in shortly after Sting took the stage for his opening slot while he was playing If I Ever Lose My Faith In You. As we got closer, I saw a familiar face watching his set from just behind one of the stage monitors. "Hey, that's Bill Kreutzmann! . . . And there's Mickey . . . and Jerry. Wow, they're ALL there, just hangin' around, checkin' this guy out!" That said a lot to me about the band: how much respect they had for fellow musicians, how laid-back and disregarding of show-biz formality they were, and how much they got off on just getting into watching some really hot musicians at work. I have never seen a headline act do that anywhere else. I've seen the headliner join the opener for a song-actually saw Sting do that with Lyle Lovett-but that's the only time I ever saw the headliner(s) just hanging around on stage to check out the warm-up set. Like I said earlier, eventually Vince stepped out to play with Sting, but that was a little later in the set after the rest of the band had apparently opted to get back inside the a/c.

That was the only show I saw that summer. Did the Dead do that same sort of thing on the rest of the tour? How prone were they to doing this sort of thing in general? Of course, in the early years, shows were pretty much a free-for-all, anybody or anything could come on while anybody or anything was on stage. But in the later years, when it was more "professional," for lack of a better word, how often might one find The Grateful Dead doing this?

I was standing 20 feet from the stage at the time. He was there.
